            Word. None other like it anywhere, for a great many reasons.

            ...this shit is a crying shame...
            The leadership's apparent drift into authoritarianism certainly is. The brave response of the people is not--except for what they are suffering as a result.

            and you, my friend, are a terrible fuck wit.
            Question for you, Bneterasedmynam: have you ever been to Turkey? It's a rather vast and varied country to be written off in so few words.

              I'm sure it is, but it is also an area of the world that is neck deep in hostility and religious zeal, if they ever decide to leave the dark age and give up their hate then maybe I could see your point.

                Nice trolling, but the hippie-part gave it away. No one is that ignorant. Trolling is an art, please try to be a little more subtle.


                Some more pics:



                Edogans party-center burning.



                Teargas



                And where it is coming from...

                  You could have given me at least a page of hate first.

                  Surely that can has to be someone's idea of a troll.

                    What is the real reason behind the protests? Is it the secular against the religious? Cause the official reason that started it all was the cutting of treas in a park in favor of a shopping center, and that is obviously just the straw.

                      It's more about people being fed up with corruption (the last anger-creating moment being the bosphorus-canal with its shady funding and some bigger scandals).

                      Religion vs. Secularism only comes in to it in the way that Erdogan's remaining supporters mostly consist of religious people - a group he tries to hold by any populistic symbol-policy possible.

                        As seen in this thread, in the Hayabusa pulls rising sun, and in this:
                        http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...t=#post2767137 Bentmyass lacks integrity and perception and brains, and is sadly very defensive. While Devil is flippant.


                        Istanbul. My daughter spent months there and loved it. She described the miles long weekend street parties - the streets turned into pedestrian malls with music and food. My Quaker friends did months in Turkey and loved it. It's on my bucket list and I hope and pray for the people. Once again the fundamentalists, the corrupt, and military are killing and imprisoning. To disparage the people who are putting their lives on the line for freedom is despicable.

                        The pattern of the struggle for RIGHTS has many enemies. To prejudice, segregation, apartheid, racism, war, exploitation, and oppression we should add Xenophobia. (Xenophobia = very human but irrational or unreasoned fear of that which is perceived to be foreign or strange).

                        It's like "How do you define ignorance and apathy?" "I don't know and I don't care."

                        The morally inept, the selfish, the dullards and fools are never politically or spiritually involved. Empathy and sympathy elude their little souls. Karma? I hope we all can grow.

                        And it's like dealing with the biker two nights ago. The wife and I are having a nice meal in Pahoa. Biker roars his harley by the open windows and doors, then parks. When he gets to the bar the guys there say, somewhat joking, that was you being obnoxious? When we left I told him he was obnoxious and his response was to smile and say thank you. What can you say? I have a wonderful wife, a new house on the hill overlooking Hilo, friends and lovers and can side kick your face and he's a little twerp with loud pipes.

                        If he was on the internet he could share his loser persona.

                          It has some of these. Many parts of the world do. No society is perfect.

                          Stating that that's all there is to that country--or that such is prominent at all times--is something that can only be done by an individual who gets all his "information" from report-bad-shit-only media.

                          You have decided to be that individual.

                          ...if they ever decide to leave the dark age and give up their hate...
                          Is this your idea of logic?

                          Even your report-only-bad-shit media have reported that what the protestors hate is the attempt to pull the country back into the dark ages.

                          ...then maybe I could see your point.
                          My point is that you're attempting to discuss something about which you know very little. Thus far, your responses only serve to reinforce that impression.

But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."
